Doctor blade stiffness refers to the blade’s resistance to bending or deflection. The stiffness of the blade is essential because it determines the amount of pressure the blade can apply to the surface it is in contact with. If the blade is too soft, it will not apply enough pressure, and if it is too stiff, it may damage the surface. The stiffness of the doctor blade should be optimized for the specific application it is used in.
